If you think your life is weird or scary, well, you should try Cassondra’s life on for size. She has battled people over 100 years old. But just because they’re old doesn’t mean they can’t pack a punch. This book is great, I was glued to it. My mom had to make me STOP reading (for once) when I was crossing the street! [itutso1380]
Cass, Max-Ernest, and Yo-Yoji are at it again. This time, though, they almost had the secret. After it crumbled away in her hands, Cass, the supposedly “secret keeper,” will try anything to get back the knowledge of her great ancestor, the Jester. This story isn’t about him. It’s about the secret. The ancient Egyptian secret that holds the key to life is still out there. Actually, it’s inches away from Cass’s pointy ears. After taking a trip to the local museum, Cass manages to break off a priceless mummy’s finger. All three must stay and repay their debt by working. They find something much more – the mummy is the doctor that discovered the secret. Yes, The Secret! The three travel across the country to a place of lights, magic, pyramids, and the revealing of the secret.
Have you ever had ancient villains trying to murder you? Well, if you read this book, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. The narrator’s sense of humor is everywhere, and the connections to all of the other books are amazing. As Pseudonymous Bosch tells you, YOU HAVE TO STOP THIS! Book Two in the Secret Series.

The Midnight Sun is at it again. This time they’re in a cacao plantation. But where is it? It’s in a zoo. Why a cacao plantation, you may ask? Well, the villain, Señor Hugo, is trying to make a chocolate so rich it will send Cass back to the past to get the secret from her great ancestor, the jester.
I really liked this book, just like all of the others in the Secret series. The plot twists and turns. All of the footnotes add compelling details. Even better the appendix, it shows you even more that the book can’t explain within the plot, such as Max-Ernest’s 100 languages to say hello. Overall, I loved this book. [That Girl]
